Description

The purpose of this program is to assist state and local governments, including federally recognized Indian tribes that serve a law enforcement function, protect against contraband cellphone use in correctional facilities.

The site-based awards are for state and local governments, including federally recognized Indian tribes that serve a law enforcement function, to operationalize effective and secure managed access systems in correctional settings to prevent, detect, seize, and stop the presence and use of contraband cellphones by detainees and inmates.

Jurisdictions will be expected to test, implement, and document changes to policy, practice, and tactics as they relate to preventing, detecting, seizing, and stopping the presence and use of contraband cellphones by detainees and inmates.
